@Hellfighter I hope you are right. With the shake up of writers and director it is hard to say what really is going to happen.
I AM very unhappy that Darabont was removed from the show. No one talks about it which means it was NOT something pleasant or something the fans would like as the fans would probably side with Darabont as this was mostly HIS doing in its initial quality presentation but of course, contracts, contacts, residuals, a million reasons for NOT wanting to create bad blood and have the show/actors/amc/directors etc suffer from fans anger. Hollywood b.s. "diplomacy".
